One open day has been held already on Saturday, May 15.

A spokesman for Hassocks Angling said: “Another success story was the member and her son who had been out three times without success so decided to come along for some advice.

Within ten minutes Ben had a lovely little tench and later in the day lost a much bigger fish.

“It was a very successful day and we would like to thank all who came along.”
